Lou Costello (This is your life).
Original air date: 21 November 1956.
Cast: Bud Abbott, Carole Costello, Chris Costello, Lou Costello, Paddy Costello-Humphreys, Ralph Edwards(Host) and Edward Sherman.
Lou Costello had 50 years at this telecast and he died too soon at 52. Nobody knows that he will be dead 2 years later too young. Thanks for the memories for the incredible duo of Abbott anf Costello.

This is an incredible show and proves that reality TV can actually be good. The stories about the boy who he helped walk and the girl whose life he saved by helping her get hospital treatment are touching. Fantastic Program!

Lou Costello A Very Precious Individual
An excellent "This Is Your Life" featuring Lou Costello. This is well worth watching. Some comments below mention Lou Costello dying at such a young age. An acute Rheumatic Fever, causing him to be bedridden for nine months toward the end of World War II, damaged his heart. Other sources indicate that within a decade he again suffered from rheumatic fever. Lou's rheumatic heart disease shortened his life span just as it did John Garfield, Bobby Darin and others. Abbott and Costello are my favorite comedy team.

They don't make them like this. He was dead 20 years before I was born and is still one of my favorite comedians.

This is your Life Lou Costello.
He deserved to have lived longer. I couldn't help but have tears in my eyes as I watched this show and found out lots of things I didn't know about him. I have all their movies and will always love Abbott and Costello.
